Very Cheap Milk From Albertsons

I went to Albies again tonight to grab some very cheap milk. They have it on sale right now 3 gallons of their Shoppers Value for $5.00. Which is cheap.... but not cheap enough for this coupon lady!

I used 2 of the $.75 printable coupons from And then doubled the coupons. The double coupons were in your daily paper today, or you can easily ask customer service for an ad at any Albertson's and they will happily give you one.

So after the coupons and doubles I paid $2.19 for 3 gallons of milk. That is including tax!!

Nice deal huh. Let me know if you need any help with this scenario. I will be happy to help you all get milk for $.73 a gallon.

Albertson's last night

Last night was the last night of this sale, so I had to go after I got off of work at 10:30 last night, but it was well worth it.

I had coupons for everything of coarse and when you spent $25.00 on Conagra products you receive a $10.00 Catalina. My total was $25. and something and with my coupons and my Catalina from last week it came to $10.61 + I received another $10.00 Catalina. Which made all of these products $.61.
I bought 8 Healthy Choice meals, 3 Marie Callenders' Pasta Al' Dentes (My new found favorite) and 3 Chef BoyArdees for Austin.

Wow and after seeing today's Albertsons ad I am going to get more freebies!! Yeah Doubles again!!

I'll let you all know how I do!

You Data

I just have to let my few readers that I do have know about You Data. I know that I have mentioned them before. But yesterday I bought a Thomas and Friends DVD for my little Austin from Ebay.
I was pleasently surprised when I won this and quickly went through Pay Pal to pay.

For the last 2 weeks I have been viewing ads from You Data and the $$ goes directly in to my pay pal account every Friday. Well, It's not much but I had accumulated $4.66. The DVD was $1.82 + $2.99 for shipping. So buy paying through my pay pal account my transaction amount debited from my checking account was only $.15. I was so freakin excited when I read that. So anyone who hasn't jumped on this Youdata band wagon, I suggest that you do.

Here is the link that will get you started on You Data. Don't be worried when they want your cell phone #. They only text you a confirmation # that you add when you register. It's a very simple process.

Great weekend at Idaho City

No couponing for me the last few days, I was too busy making memories with my family.

Sometimes you gotta pick and choose. I chose a family getaway (in the mud) with our very courageous sidekicks...The other Foxes.

We had so much fun. The rain, the mud, the enormous puddles. That didn't stop these boys from having the time of their lives.

Just look at these faces.

As you can see we are a dirt bike riding family, well Susan and I are not of coarse but everyone else is and Austin is on his way. Too soon for me probably, but in his mind he already is!

On a good note........

On a good note we all received more double coupons in our papers this morning from Albertsons. You have until Tuesday the 9th at Midnight to cash in on all the great deals that Albies has to offer.

I receive 4 Idaho Press Tribune papers every Sunday now and in one of my papers I received 2 extra P&G coupon inserts. That gave me 6 P&G inserts all together.

I was pretty excited about that!

Smart Ones..........Smart buy

I made my yearning trip to Target this morning. I have had my $4.00/10 Smart ones coupon just burning a hole in my coupon book. So this morning with Larry home watching our slightly ill child I ran to Target.

The Smart Ones were on sale for $1.80. If you buy 10, you get a $5.00 GC. So duh, I bought 20 of them. Not realizing w/ the gift card and w/ my $4/10 coupon I actually only paid $1.40 ea.

That my friends is a good price for these very yummy, healthy meals. My favorite is the Spicy Szeshuan Style Vegetables & Chicken!

The 3 Crystal Light packs I picked up for free. Printed out coupons from here. The Soft Scrub Pads were on sale for $2.04 and I had a BOGO coupon. Sweet! I needed these for our camp trailer.

My total OOP was $30.01 + $10.00 in GC.

Not bad for a quick trip to Target.

You Data

Dear all my friendly readers,

I found something that I think you will like. The company's name is YouData ( They are trying to convince consumers like us that we should be the ones controlling our own data and selling our own attention, not third parties like broadcasters, newspapers, and spammers. By creating a MeFile at, I now control what ads I see and when I see them. Best part - I am selling my attention directly to interested advertisers, for real money. That's right, I get paid for giving them my attention. I can use the funds to buy music and video online, donate to charities, give to my favorite blogs and websites, or keep the change myself and do whatever I want with it.

It's real. They pay. You should check it out.

Click this link to sign up. My MeFile ID, smiling_mama, in the "Referral Code" will tell them I sent you.

Take care,

P.S. I get paid every Friday through Pay Pal. Simple as that. Not much, but I earned $3.25 last week just by clicking on their ads. So easy a monkey could do it.

Swag Bucks

I have been hearing nothing but great things about this Swag bucks website, so I had to sign up. I have a whopping 5 Swag Bucks. So I will keep on searching and referring. Here is my referral link.

Check it out. Apparently you get free stuff, like $5.00 Amazon Gift cards for every 45 Swag Bucks you earn. I am just starting out, so I will let you all know in a future post on how it goes.

My Grand Target Deal for the week

Thanks to Money Saving Mom for all of the spectacular scenarios. Check out the Target deals she worked out here.

I got all of this stuff that you see for $1.97.

The Sobe Life water was B1G1. It was $1.00. I wanted to try it out. Good stuff I might add. (black and blueberry... yum)
I went to the Aquafresh website here to print out the $1.25 coupon for a free trial. This was also a money maker. It was $.97 and she took off the full amount of the coupon.
Like I need more chocolate in my house. Can't resist the free bliss bars. 8 total.
The edge shaving gel I got for $.49/ea. can't beat a price like that can you?

I also had to buy my little monkey a new Ricky Carmichael bike. (His NEE NEE) It kept him happy all through the store and all the way home.
I also purchased a nice polo shirt for Chase. ($6.99) He graduates from Elementary tomorrow and needed a nice collared shirt! Oh my goodness my baby is going to be in Middle School next year. Sigh of relief actually, we were all wondering if he was going it make it. With a little tutoring this summer, he should be fine!

Unfortunately I didn't have a coupon for his bike....but sometimes you just gotta' say oh well! (for the bike $7.49......happy kid in Target w/out screaming.....priceless)
